The Bowery Mission served 8,000 meals to New Yorkers in need this Thanksgiving. 

The charity will host 1,800 people throughout the day at its flagship location.

Every hour between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., guests sit down for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. 

They'll also receive a brand new coat, winter accessories and hygiene items. 

Hundreds of volunteers help make this day happen, including NY1's own political anchor Errol Louis.

"We've been coming every year in part because it's needed. They actually need a lot of hands and a lot of people here to serve people," Louis said. "You could serve thousands of people in just a few hours, but it takes a lot of volunteers. So they understand perfectly that whether or not you've got one hour, two hours or half an hour to help out, the help is really needed."

The Bowery Mission will serve up to 10,000 meals just this week.
